What People Are Saying

“Our three year old son just finished three months of speech therapy for a mild speech delay. My son loved his therapist Sarina and looked forward to his weekly sessions with her. She was so kind, friendly, patient and great with kids. She explained everything to us really well and made excellent recommendations about how we could support him at home. He has made tremendous improvement in just a few months and is now much less frustrated when communicating. Our family and friends even noticed the difference in his speech. We couldn't have asked for a better therapist. Thank you Sarina!" ”
